I have worked at many companies who source goods from overseas including China. I understand the economic drive to do so.
On the flip side, I also understand the desire to keep things local - including our dollars.
Now, dollars for donuts, most people I run into are more concerned with the price of things - and I completely understand this mentality and find myself frequenting that path of thinking from time to time - but... when it comes down to it, if you put two products in front of me (one US made and one made elsewhere) of equal quality, I will prefer to purchase the US made product even if it costs me more (within reason, say 33% or so).
My logic is that keeping jobs and dollars in our country is the only way we are going to survive as a nation.
I love your products and have purchased several (I think the count is now 5?) hammocks from you directly or indirectly through family members. We love the quality and the fact that you make them in the US. I'd hate to see that change!
Now... to get off my soapbox...
Thanks much for keeping us in the loop - it is greatly appreciated and speaks volumes about who you are.
